To the American Regional IP Network Community,

Don't you think that current ARIN fees exceeds the true value of IP
addresses? Actually, they are just numbers, and ARIN is in charge by IANA to
assign these IP's to people in all North America. For commercial companies
with revenues of several Million Dollars a year these IP address blocks ARIN
assigns are affordable. But smaller non-commercial organizations and even
schools cannot pay for them.

Especially for high schools, colleges, and smaller universities such prices
can mean a harm to their classroom project, thus they mean a harm to

ARIN should change their policies to waive the fees for educational
institutions and non-commercial organizations.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
Christopher Mettin
